The winner receives the Indie Writer’s Makeover: consultation with literary agent Sam Hiyate; blue pencil session with Globe & Mail culture columnist and novelist Russell Smith; and advice and feedback from cutting edge publisher BookThug!

Plus $200 cash and publication in the Spring 2015 issue of Broken Pencil.
